eclipse

Eclipse: "Diamond Ring" with Prominences. Yesterday, the eclipse totality was the fastest 2 minutes and 11 seconds of my life. The experience was... 'indescribable and life changing.' It truly was night time during the day. The sky was so black, stars and planets were easily seen. During totality the horizon looked like twilight-sunset in every direction. The whole experience moved me to tears. It was an utterly and completely unforgettable encounter with the science of astrophysics and the awe of the big guy with the long beard and flowing gown sitting on a majestic throne. It was the stoke of catching my first wave on a surfboard times 100. It should be on everyone's top 5 bucket lists challenges.

Quick and to the point, wisely chosen words to "describe" the indescribable. I couldn't agree more.

Cheers,
